What Constitutes a Pet Emergency?

Some pet illnesses and injuries may seem life threatening, but not all actually constitute an emergency. As a pet owner, it’s good for you to know when a situation is really life threatening to your pet so that you can act quickly in getting your pet to a Miami emergency vet. The following situations can be extremely dangerous for your dog or cat and require immediate intervention from an emergency veterinarian:

  • Accidental injuries that result in broken bones, open wounds, or uncontrollable bleeding
  • Serious burns or infections
  • Ingestion of toxic substances that result in gagging, foaming at the mouth, constant vomiting/diarrhea, or listlessness
  • Prolonged, difficult labor when giving birth
  • Serious ear infections that cause your pet to become disoriented or imbalanced
  • Seizures
  • Symptoms of heat stroke or hypothermia
  • Urinary tract infections that cause pain when urinating, excessive urination, urinary blockages, or blood in urine
  • Difficulty breathing, choking, or gagging due to swallowing foreign object
  • Severe allergic reactions
